Panax Red Ginseng, otherwise known as Korean ginseng, or Chinese red ginseng is the go-to herb for mega energy (qi) boost. Its properties are more yang based (think sun as yang, moon as yin), hence it has more of a âgo-goâ image. Take a few slices before working out to boost your energy and stamina. Or add a few slices to trail mix for a delicious and natural burst of energy! Simply eat 2 to 4 slices a day (for best results, use before meals) or soak 2 to 4 pieces in half a cup of hot water, let steep for 5 minutes then drink the water and chew the slices.
MEDICAL BENEFITS OF RED GINSENG: (from Wikipedia)
Red ginseng (Korean=íì¼(hong-sam), simplified Chinese: çº¢è; traditional Chinese: ç´ è), is P. ginseng that has been heated, either through steaming or sun-drying.
